About the UNPRI

The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative is an international network of investors working together to put six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. Its goal is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their investment decision making and ownership practices. In implementing the Principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.
